Marisa Rodrigues - The sites are located outside the urban perimeter, on the road that connects the Luz village to the N125. These are two sites, facing each other, much smaller than the first search site where there are still some ongoing searches expected to end on Sunday.
After a 48-hour halt, all attentions will be focused here on Wednesday. During two days the English police and forensic technicians, using sophisticated equipment and sniffer dogs, are going to search for traces of Madeleine McCann, in an operation authorized by the Public Prosecutor's Office, which will also be supervised by the Judiciary Police.
TVI knows these two sites were selected because of the morphological alterations on the ground surface that were detected with the help of satellite sensing. This was used as basis in the request in the letter rogatory, which also includes requests for 8 persons of interest to be questioned to be conducted by the Judiciary Police, a step that will only take place when all the searches on the ground have ended.
Bearing in mind the dimension of these two sites, the GNR personnel will be significantly reduced from the total of the 40 GNR military officers that are in Praia da Luz. Everything will be set up, during the dawn time of Wednesday so all will be ready in the morning to go-ahead with the searches.
